Food culture has shaped the landscape of the region around Lake Constance. You start this tour with the state winery of Meersburg with its modern technologies and its long tradition in wine making.

The tour continues with the adventure Café Tekrum Kambly in Ravensburg where you experience the pastry production firsthand and enjoy a great cup of coffee or tea.

Then continue your journey in Feldkirch with the “Schnabulieren & Degustieren” tour. On your way to Arbon, stop at the Principality of Liechtenstein where you definitely need to pay a visit in the Hofkellerei Vaduz.
